    Do you have an electric dyer in your house? What kind of clothes do you put into it? I'm thinking about purchasing one but some people say it can ruin your clothes.

    Drying stresses the fabir much more than washing, that's for sure. Most dryers have an "air dry" setting meaning it uses a gentle tumble and does not use hot air. That's the way to go for clothing. Use heat for stuff like towels, sheets, socks/underwear, and to fluff pillows. Hard to imagine not having a dryer, it will simplify your life the same way a dishwasher will.

    Also, never use fabric softener, scented detergents, and have one detergent specifically made for dark clothing. And if you have a Trader Joes, get these for towels/sheets:

    Sure sign of white trash too. It's a tacky way to try and smell good. The same goes for scented deodorant.
